Combining the portability of a folding bike with the all-terrain capabilities of a fat tire bike, the Green Bike USA 500W GB1 Fat Tire Folding Electric Bike is full of innovative design features. Determined to change the way the average American views their daily commute, Green Bike USA continue to expand their range of electric bikes. Realizing that there was a gap in the market for an all-terrain fat tire e-bike, they set about creating an electric bike that could be ridden across sand, mud or snow, and then easily folded up and stored under a desk once the destination was reached.
One of the first electric bikes released by Green Bike USA was the popular GB-05, a huge success due to the fact that it included full suspension (whereas most folding bikes sacrifice suspension in order to reduce the overall weight). Realizing the importance of having decent suspension if you are going to be riding off-road, Green Bike USA has fitted the GB1 fat tire folding bike with front suspension. In order to improve safety as well as comfort, the GB1 folding electric bike also has front and rear Tektro disc brakes; not only that, the GB1 has been kitted out with brake lights, plus left and right turning signals (features not often seen on an electric bicycle).
The 8 FUN 500 watt electric motor runs off a Samsung lithium-ion 48 volt, 10 amp hour battery, enabling the Green Bike USA GB1 folding bike to reach a potential range of 50 miles (subject to conditions). The engine can be engaged using a Class II thumb throttle, or by selecting one of the 9 levels of Pedal Assist (PAS). The Pedal Assist is great for when you feel like pedaling but could do with a little extra support, such as when you are traveling uphill, encounter a strong headwind or need to reach your destination faster. The PAS level can be selected using the large multi-function LCD display, which also allows you to monitor your distance, check your current speed, and see the time.
